All right guys let me come to the point, So I reinstalled my windows xp, I have a Intex sound card

My on-board is dead so after i installed the drivers i saw that i had no sound when i went

to the device maneger i saw a error on the device

PIc of the error

http://uploadpic.org/storage/originals/enenn2skf3s32fsnnnjn9sre9n.bmp

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

I did a lot of search and found out some info, so heres all the things i tried

*Reinstall drivers

*Disable the on-board audio (since i reformated i never installed my on-board sound drivers but i did went to bios and saw "Audio controller" which i Disabled.)

*Move Sound card to a another slot

*Flash bios

I Tried all the things above but still no use so i had to do something since i have

no sound i went to System Information to see whats conflicting with the sound card

i saw that sound card had resources saying "I/O 0xFFFFFFFC-0xFFFFFFF"

*Windows Xp with SP3
*Mercury PI945GCM
*Intel Dual Core 2
*1.60 GHz And 1 GB RAM

Well...how many of the suggestions have you currently done?

I would not flash the BIOS.

System manufacturer and model?

If your onboard sound went dead...I'd have to wonder about motherboard functionality.

Thanks for the reply Louis and yes all

of them, well since i already flashed my BIOS lets move on

System Manufacturer: Mercury

Model: PI945GCM

My on-board sound card went dead long time a go

This Intex sound card was working all fine until one day when i saw it gave me the error i had to format my system anyway

So i said why not now, So i did but that didnt not help at all but made one thing clear it has something to do with BIOS or a

Hardware issue.

Hmm...

Ok louis i will give it a try

And i did Disable the onboard sound, Atleast i think i did i went to BIOS and saw nothing saying AC97 or Hd Audio under Integrated Peripherals

Only thing i saw was "Audio controller" which i already Disabled

Anyway if i cant fix it, I think it wood be better if take it to the servicing center

Thanks for your help ^_^

The reason I specified in the BIOS...some users disable components via Device Manager and it's simpler to just do it from the BIOS (if possible), IMO.
